Arsene Wenger has to follow up the FA Cup victory with more silverware this season by SE
A lot has gone on, after that crushing defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day last season, for Wenger and the Arsenal faithful. From receiving criticism for his inactivity in the transfer market last English summer to nearly winning the Premier League, and finally ending the 9-year trophy drought by winning the FA Cup, Arsene Wenger ended the tempestuous 2013/14 campaign on a high. .......Read the full article here
Many footballing fans around the world are expecting Arsenal to be one of the top teams in the coming season. With the signing of Alexis Sanchez, the superstar talents of Ozil and Ramsey and the breakthrough after winning the FA cup, many would expect this to be the season where Arsenal will finally deliver the much talked about major honours. Promise after promise and season after season, Arsenal have disappointed her fans for quite a while now. This time, Arsenal finally have the financial capability and the squad talent to fight for the major honours. Fighting is one thing, actually winning it is another. Are the gunners ready to start lifting the trophies? .......Read the full article here
‘Arsenal fans now have a responsibility’ by Le Prof Knows…..
As the curtain closes on the World Cup, our focus turns to the opening day of Arsenal’s season against Crystal Palace. Clearly, this is going to be an exciting season and from our point of view, one of the most exciting for years.
With Sanchez through the door, closely followed by Debuchy and Khedira (hopefully!), we are getting serious and will be in the hunt on all fronts. We did relatively well in the league last season without the new additions… with them, we will definitely be in contention. .......Read the full article here
I think that Arsenal can look back on the 2013-14 season as a success. We qualified yet again for the Champions League, to which some fans would mock and say that we shouldn’t celebrate the fact that we have ‘another 4th place trophy’. Well the ’4th place trophy’ is especially crucial in being able to recruit a good standard of players. Ill try not to mention Man Utd mid table mediocrity this season. Also who could forget that whirlwind of an FA Cup final this season which we won to break our 9 year trophy drought, unless you count the Emirates Cup, Amsterdam Tournament and the Markus Liebherr Cup, yes they are pre-season tournaments and they are included for the inherent irony of using the words ‘trophy drought’. .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger is the longest serving manager in the Barclays Premier League at present. That alone is a great compliment. A manger overseeing over a thousand games in this cut-throat era of football management is very rare. Throw in the three league titles and four FA cup victories and you have a legend.
Now, recent Arsenal fans might not remember the glory days but Arsene Wenger once delivered success. Not the dubious kind of Top Tour ‘success’ of recent years but real trophies. When Wenger was appointed, Tony Adams, who was the Arsenal captain at the time said, “At first, I thought: What does this Frenchman know about football? He wears glasses and looks more like a schoolteacher. He’s not going to be as good as George Graham. Does he even speak English properly? .......Read the full article here
I know all of you would be sad right now and furious on our team’s performance. But Gooners, I want to ask each one of you some very basic questions.
What if we don’t win the title, should we stop supporting our team? And stop getting behind our players? Now, what if our team loses FA Cup, should we stop supporting our team? And stop singing at the Emirates? Even tougher, what if we don’t qualify for CL this season? Should we stop supporting our team? .......Read the full article here
Arsenal’s current longest-serving player Bacary Sagna has looked to be set to leave the Emirates this summer as he has not yet agreed to sign a new contract extension. Talks seem to have been going on for the last 18 months and there have been rumours abounding that PSG and (God Forbid!) Man City have been preparing to offer the versatile Frenchman a big-money contract to end his career with them.
But now perhaps the talks are nearing a conclusion, as the right-back’s latest comments would seem to indicate he has no desire to leave Arsenal at all! Sagna said in The Mirror: “I love Arsenal, I love playing for Arsenal, I love my team,” .......Read the full article here
After eight years without a trophy, it is quite understandable that Arsenal fans have become frustrated and desperate to win another. When you consider this is the same club that just 10 years won the Premier League title, becoming the first, and still the only, side to do it without losing a single match, eight years without even a measly league cup is just not good enough. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been criticised a lot in recent years, as it seemed ever more likely that we would not regain glory under his management, however many fans are forgetting what he has done for the club during his 17 year reign, as well as the figure he represents the club as. .......Read the full article here
There is a strange feeling around Arsenal Football Club at the minute, especially among the players. It is an unusual sensation, characterised by being able to sleep soundly at night without waking up in a cold sweat after having a nightmare about being chased by a crazed potato(or spud) down the Seven Sisters road.
This long forgotten feeling is called confidence, and it seems to be contagious. The latest Gunner to be overtaken with this confidence knows a thing or two about big games and pressure, having won 90 caps for the German national team, but strangely he has only got one winners medal, from the German cup final of 2009. Our Big F**king German has been runner up in the Bundesliga, the Uefa cup, the German cup and at Euro 2008, so he knows all about disappointment. .......Read the full article here
What can Arsenal Fan’s expect from this new Era at the Club? by Josh09

During this long waited interview Gazidis also braved the ‘million dollar question’ to answer to the question on Arsenal’s transfer plans, opening the door for big transfer fees and extravagant wages. .......Read the full article here
